FAG IN THE WHITEHOUSE

The Googey Moogey Man

"Fuck kids in their 20s, particularly in Bushwick or Williamsburg or wherever."

Yeah you're so much better than them because you're 31 and live in Carroll Gardens and work at Gawker. Fuck you dude. This article is a piece of shit and Gawker sucks. I wish my coworkers would stop sending me links to your horrible website.

The Historical Comedy Genre

What the hell is the point of this story? To solicit some cheap laughs from multiple tragedies in the Kennedy family by positing some false equivalency with the personnel of a mediocre rock band, like you're some kind of hipster open-mike night stand-up comic testing new material? Shame on you. Grow up.

From: David

Subject: So you delete everyone else's comments just to clear out the hotpockets comments?

From: David
To: A.J.
Why, specifically?

From: A.J.
To: David

Huh? I'm not deleting shit. It's a guy toying with the glitches inthe system of which there are many. Wish I could help.

From: David
To: A.J.

where did all the other comments go? there appears to be only one page of discussions all of the sudden.

there are no glitches. the glitches were between the keyboard and chair when this system was created.

From: David
To: A.J.

I know it's a gross example and I know you're too much of a grossly insubordinate
brooklyn-grown idiot to ever realize or care to comprehend, but in the wrong place at the wrong time, I would've killed myself if someone outed me.

I'm a troll. You're a monster. And a pathetic one, at that.

From: A.J.

From Carol, With Pity

From: Carol
To: A.J.
Subject: who cares

Glad she got the interview.Good for her.She's terrific.Who cares about her sexual orientation.Sour grapes on the part of the other commentators.

From: A.J.
To: Carol

She cared. That's the point of the story.—

From: Carol
To: A.J.

The point of the story was to cause her trouble and create "hot news" so stupid and unnecessary.WHO CARES.If she cares RESPECT THAT.Carol Post

From: Carol
To: A.J.

So,she cares.It is HER private life not your mission to embarrass her.Carol

From: Carol
To: A.J.

You are to be pitied.You won't last in your job.The American public will tire of your comments hopefully sooner than later.Sitting on a toliet.Are you an idiot??????

From: A.J.
To: Carol

I'm sure she's the furthest thing from embarrassed. She just had one of the most sought after interviews with the POTUS and was well aware this would come up. Other people's embarrassment and hers are not one in the same.

She knows she's gay. She's open about it. The fact that it would "out" her is more secondary but nevertheless newsworthy considering the major news that came out of her interview.
